How do I arrange for sacraments?
Children in grades K – 8 should be enrolled in Religious Education where they will receive preparation for the sacraments. Parents wishing to have their baby baptized need to attend a baptism preparation class which meets on the first Tuesday of every month in the church at 7:00 pm. After attending the class please call the parish office to set a date. If you wish to be married please call the parish office for more information at 732-349-0018 ext. 2202.
Adults who wish to complete their initiation sacraments or who wish to become Catholic should call Marge at 732-349-0018 ext. 2236. This is also for those children over the age of 7 who need to be baptized.
How do I enroll in Vacation Bible School?
Vacation Bible School is held each summer for children age 4 – grade 2. Information and registration information will be available here and through the religious education office in the spring.
